Let's hope Celtic can get the job done today. If they win, or draw, the title's pretty much theirs for the 11th season in 12.

I hope Everton can make a game of it as well. I'd love to see Dyche's boys get a point today. But Man Utd could run away with this one.

Dyche has been playing a 4-5-1, with Gray up top, a midfield three of Onana-Doucoure-Gana, and McNeil and Iwobi wide - which is not Iwobi best position, he’s more creative centrally, but he pairs well with Coleman over there.

With Doucoure suspended, the like for like swap to keep the shape would be either Davies or Garner. By adding another attacker, Dyche is being bold. Not a park the bus side.

Doesn’t look like the best MU lineup.

Corner to Rangers - ball into Morelos, he scores, goal chalked off for freekick, standard pre corner kick tussles in the box...goes to VAR...still no goal. Match being played at Parkhead FWIW.
Ally McCoist on co comms is not happy. To be fair it was very soft

Rangers have turned up.

EDIT: This fixture badly needs more away fans.

Everton ripped open too easily. Great Pickford saves to keep them in it, and now a Godfrey tackle. MU going Route 1 and just blazing past Evertons slow CB

Again and again Utd going over the top and getting in, Pickford standing on his head to keep them out

Toffees can’t play this scheme. They need the extra body in midfield. Simms off for Davies and Gray up top.

It’s interesting that in the Sabitzer, Bruno, Mctominay midfield Bruno is playing the deepest of the 3. He did it against Brentford too.

He’s pinged some nice passes already and isn’t afraid to mix it up. Obviously it’s better with Casemiro and Bruno forward but this is working today.

Sooooo easy for Utd. Gain possession and launch a long ball. Toffees far too slow.

Dyche has badly botched this. We can’t play 442.

I would do this at halftime

Myko for Godfrey
Davies for Simms

Damn. Tavernier with a perfectly struck free kick over the wall. Maybe Hart got his starting position wrong.
Tavernier scores free kicks for fun. When you have a dead ball expert like that, it always gives you a punchers chance of grabbing a goal. Celtic haven’t had one since Nakamura. Although you could argue Griffiths was pretty good.

Celtic are living dangerously here. Giving up chances. Slack passing. Four players are on yellow and the tackles have been flying in.

Souttar's had a shocker with that pass back to the keeper.

Jota did great to intercept and squeeze the ball in.

That's the title there IMO.
